Thank you so much for undoing the vandalism! I've been at NOWD this weekend and my energies have bern elsewhere. I'm actually writing this on the train on the way to the airport. The rest will be taken care of once I get past security. Thanks a lot! Sushimustwrite 18:38, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

No prob (I just destroyed some more)... who are the SysOps [or whatever admins are called] around here though? I suggest we ban the people who keep ruddy vandalizing. Catuse167 02:11, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
I'm the sysop. Yes, just me, which is why things have gone a little nuts over the weekend while I was away at NOWD and recovering from it. As I mentioned elsewhere, I'm looking into a way to block more bots while minimizing inconveniencing humans, perhaps a whitelist of external links. (And those bots I mentioned blocking earlier? That was while I was on Caltrain on the way to the airport. Hooray for 3G and being above ground!) As for blocking, all spamming gets the user blocked forever, so yes, I definitely block spam when I see it, and I'll be doing more of it on my travels for Thanksgiving. Whee! -Sushimustwrite 14:07, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
I hate to agree with captcha abuse, but it seems that Questy Captcha is the best when it comes to preventing spam on wikis.
Also, are we about the only two users? Us and the bots are the only people I see on Recent Changes.Catuse167 17:46, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! I was looking for something like that, where users would have to answer a question. I'll look into this while I have access only to my old laptop. (I'm visiting family for Thanksgiving and this is being typed out on my phone.) As for editing, I'd like to think that most people are writing novels. I noticed the same thing last year even with closed membership. That was a pain in the butt, and then the extension broke... -Sushimustwrite 00:58, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

You won!

Congratulations, you won! You should write an article about your region, though. I'm just saying... -Sushimustwrite 04:27, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

I will. Catuse167 00:19, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
